Abstract

IBM UNIX systems consist of the IBM eServer pSeries and IBM RS/6000 product lines. Providing unprecedented value, these innovative systems feature IBM's leading-edge technology and run the top-rated UNIX operating system, AIX. This broad product line ranges from powerful workstations ideal for mechanical design; to mission-critical symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) servers for ERP, SCM, CRM, transaction processing, and Web serving; up to parallel RS/6000 SP systems that can handle demanding scientific and technical computing and business intelligence tasks. These platforms provide the power to create change and the flexibility to manage it, with thousands of applications that provide real value. More than 1,000,000 systems have shipped to over 135,000 businesses worldwide.

Model Abstract 7006-41T

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of January 10, 1997)

The RS/6000 graphics workstation is a desktop system that is binary compatible with the RS/6000 family. The 7006 workstations support a wide range of graphics configurations enabling you to select the level of graphics performance you need - from entry-level 2D business graphics to advanced 3D technical applications.

The Model 41T graphics workstation has an 80MHz PowerPC 601 microprocessor, 16MB memory (expandable to 256MB), POWER GXT150L graphics adapter, 540MB SCSI-2 disk drive, keyboard, mouse and a P70 Color Monitor. The P70 Color Monitor has a maximum viewable image size of 15.9 inches/403mm measured diagonally. The Ultimedia Audio Adapter with its cost-effective, 16-bit audio capability may also be included at no additional charge if selected at time of workstation order.

The 7006 workstations support a wide range of graphics configurations enabling you to select the level of graphics performance you need - from entry-level 2D business graphics to advanced 3D technical applications.

The Model 41W graphics workstation has an 80MHz PowerPC 601* microprocessor, 16MB memory (expandable to 256MB), POWER GXT150L graphics adapter, 540MB SCSI-2 disk drive, keyboard and mouse. The Model 41W comes without a standard monitor so you have the option of using existing monitors.

Model Abstract 7006-42T

(For IBM US, No Longer Available as of September 24, 1997)

The RS/6000 graphics workstation is a desktop system that is binary compatible with the RS/6000 family. The 7006 workstations support a wide range of graphics configurations enabling you to select the level of graphics performance you need - from entry-level 2D business graphics to advanced 3D technical applications.

The Model 42T graphics workstation has a 120MHz PowerPC 604 microprocessor, 16MB memory (expandable to 256MB), POWER GXT150L* graphics adapter, 1080MB SCSI-2 disk drive, keyboard, mouse and a P70 Color Monitor. The P70 Color Monitor has a maximum viewable image size of 15.9 inches/403mm measured diagonally. The Ultimedia* Audio Adapter with its cost-effective, 16-bit audio capability may also be included at no additional charge if selected at time of workstation order.

Effective April 18, 1997, this RS/6000 system will have a 1-2 user, full function AIX Version 4 package included at no additional charge.
